Author Interview – Sonja Hegman

at 6:00 AM

*What’s your most embarrassing moment of your life?

When I was in college, I accidently flashed a bunch of people, including some of my male cousins, at an amusement park. A huge wave of water hit me, which forced my bikini top to betray me.

*Are you a city slicker or a country lover?

I grew up in a small town, but I’m a city slicker all the way.

*How do you think people perceive writers?

We’re beginning to gain more respect, but most consider the title “writer” as a nice way to say, “Unemployed.” My family is included in this group. Until I published “Trials” they didn’t take me seriously.

*What’s your next project?

My next book is called, “Moving at the Speed of Twitter: How Authors Can Build an Online Platform to Sell More Books.” Marketing took over my life after writing “Trials,” so this book gives tips on how to use every social media platform imaginable.

*How do you feel about self-publishing?

It’s great. It’s about time authors were able to take control of not only their publishing futures, but also their financial futures. With all the hard work we put into our writing, it’s only fair that we get the profits, not an outside publisher.

*What social issues interest you the most?

I’m a bit of a political news junkie. Nothing in particular really, but I like knowing what’s going on in world and how it will affect me. If I had to pick one thing, it would be equality.

*Last book you purchased? Tell us about it.

Silver Linings Playbook. I wasn’t impressed.

*What is your favorite quote, by whom, and why?

“A true friend stabs you in the front.” Oscar Wilde

I only want people in my life who are truthful and tell me exactly what they think. I don’t have time for passive-aggressiveness. I have more respect for people who are brutally honest.
